Mets DFA Jacobs, call up Tobi Stoner

Posted: April 18, 2010 in Mets

Interesting development in Metsland today, as New York waved bye-bye to first baseman Mike Jacobs and hello to pitcher Tobi Stoner. Stoner was up for a bit with the club last year and looked O.K. The Mets needed an extra arm after last night’s marathon, and Stoner is a starting pitcher and would be able to provide some innings if John Maine is again ineffective.
The key question is, who comes up to play first base? And the logical choice would be big-time prospect Ike Davis, who is tearing it up at AAA right now. Davis would inject some excitement into the lineup and he seems to have a pretty good idea what he’s doing, both at the plate and in the field. I’m actually pretty excited.
The other move I’d execute is to send Jenrry Mejia down when Davis is recalled. Let Mejia head to the minors and work on becoming a starter. That’s all for now…..
